A Big Thank You to the One Reading Hub

READING COUNCIL is extending a big thank you to everyone involved in the One Reading Community Hub

The hub, which launched during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic on 25 March, was co-ordinated by the Council in partnership with the town’s voluntary and community sector to ensure the needs of vulnerable residents were met.

The Council worked alongside many local organisations, including Reading Voluntary Action (RVA), CommuniCare, Healthwatch, Age UK Reading, ReadiFood and Engage Befriending.

Thanks to the hub and its team of volunteers, over 3,500 vulnerable residents in the town received vital food deliveries during the crisis. Grateful recipients received much-needed supplies including difficult to obtain items such as bread, milk, eggs, pasta and toilet roll, along with fresh fruit and vegetables.
